Taylor fifth high school football player to rush for 4,000 yards in season

On November 30, Jacob Taylor of Lake Arrowhead (California) Rim of the World High School became only the fifth athlete in 11-player high school football history to rush for 4,000 yards in a season.

In Rim of the World High School's 34-31 victory over Ontario (California) Christian High School, the 5-foot-11, 173-pound senior rushed 41 times for 260 yards and three touchdowns to both give him 4,032 rushing yards this season and to help lead his team to its first CIF-Southern Section East Valley championship in 36 years.

According to the National Federation of State High School Associations' online multimedia National High School Sports Record Book, John Giannantonio set the national single-season rushing record of 4,756 yards at Netcong (New Jersey) High School in 1950. The others in the "4,000-yard Club" are Tyler Ebell of Ventura (California) High School, Travis Henry of Frostproof (Florida) High School and Ken Hall of Sugar Land (Texas) High School.
